Because I love you

Because I love you 

I will tell you when your hair is a mess 

and that those colors will never compliment your skin

 

Because I love you 

I'll tell you to put back that piece of cake 

you could barely fit in that dress 

 

Because I love you 

I ask you why you wear so much makeup 

It doesn't make much of a difference

 

Because I love you 

I'll tell you to stop wasting so much time on school work 

It's not like you will ever amount to much 

 

Because I love you 

I'll tell you what everyone else is thinking 

who invited her anyway?

 

Because I love you 

I wonder why you don't just end it all today 

No one would even notice 

 

Because I love....

Because I'm learning to love you 

I realize none of that was love at all

 

Because I am learning to love you 

I'm going to accept that your comfy tummy 

Is allowed to exist 

 

Because I am learning to love you 

I'll tell you that you look a mess 

and that is okay 

 

Because I am learning to love you

I will try to look past your flaws 

and admire things like your art 

 

Because I am learning  to love you

I will try to remind you 

that you are enough for this world 

 

Because I am learning to love you 

I will look in the mirror each day and say 

"I am learning to love you and this time I'll do it right"
